OK, here I want to share with you the strategy for my new income portfolio. I know that I will probably be the exception here at Stockopedia since my impression is that most of the subscribers tend to invest with a shorter horizon and are more active investors with more trades during the year. But maybe there are some people out there who get some…

What you see above is the Fear&Greed Index you find on CNN. The index indicates whether investors are currently very optimistic - or if they are afraid. It is easy to see that they have become very anxious. The index is only 11 out of 100 possible points, last week it was even at 6. This is the result of the correction we are currently…

Hi everyone, does it make sense to use CAPE (Shiller PE ratio) as a measurement for analysing single stocks? Stocko offers this criteria but none of the Guru Screens uses it. I only know using CAPE as a measurement for a whole index, e.g. the S&P 500 etc. So I wonder if I can use CAPE (beside other criteria of course) for stockpicking, too. How…

Back on track, folks. And after having adjusted my approach to buy stocks it is now getting serious. I am looking for fundamentally solid, growth-strong and financial healthy stocks.So I created my own screener, based on different Guru screens here at Stockopedia. And now some interesting companies pop up. One I would like to share with you ist ₤LRCX. This US company is one of…

Hey everyone, some screens require a debt/asset ratio below the sector or industry median. In the table of stocks which qualify for the screen I can see the debt/asset ratio for the company, e.g. 8.25. But where do I find the one for the industry I compared the company with? I searched the stock report since I know there I can find the comparison for…

He he, mmarkkj777. I know such statements about lawyers, but you are certainly right that it is true for investors as well. Thank you for your encouraging words. I'll defintely keep up reporting about my strategy and portfolio development. But as I said this will not happen too often since my approach is some kind of nondescript. So no fancy stuff and the next big…

You can read my disclaimer/disclosure in the original post that this is not an investment advice. Besides here at Stocko exist a lot of strategies from different gurus/investors. If there would be the one strategy that beats them all, why should the others still be listed? There are a lot of opinions, approaches and preferences out there when it comes to the question, what to…

I do not want to degenerate this into a debate on principles. There are different approaches and strategies (and I've already tested one or the other before), and everyone should find the one that suits him best and that he believes in. The thread here is just to explain my approach, because I've found out for myself that dividends are safer and more predictable than…

As a longterm investor I reinvest dividends and use them plus a monthly savings rate to purchase more shares. Later I want to rely on yields to produce a stream of income from my investments without selling the shares I own. I think in the end it's going to be a mixture of dividend growth and high yielding shares. You can easily find out which…

I totally agree with you. Berkshire doesn't look cheap at all and I would not buy them right now. That's why I decided to go for an income strategy. Nevertheless Warren Buffett is the most successful investor of all time in my eyes.
